Hunter Valley Real Wedding, Abby + James, Tocal Homestead

ABBY + JAMES

Tocal Homestead

“We regularly ride our bikes past Tocal and we have always be drawn to the character and charm of the venue. We especially love the big beautiful 100-year-old Fig tree on the ceremony lawn. So when it came to picking a wedding venue it was a no brainer. We loved having an all-inclusive venue as it made things so much easier and stress free.”

“Our celebrant Loz, from Hungry Hearts Co was amazing. She told our story so beautifully and better than we could have ever expected. The ceremony was fun, light-hearted and engaging.”

“I knew I wasn’t going to look like a traditional bride. I’m a pretty laid-back, easy going person and do love something different from the norm. I had always loved Zimmerman and had been eyeing a few dresses off. As soon as I tried my dress on, I knew it was the one. It was just very “me”.

James is a classic guy and wanted something timeless. The sleek black suit with silk lapel was a no brainer.”

“The reception started with drinks, lawn games and canapés. We had the most amazing weather, so our guests were able to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful sunset. We had a banquet style feast for dinner as we wanted to mingle with our guests. The food by Sprout was incredible!”

“We are both cyclists, so it  was only fitting for us to enter the reception on a tandem bicycle.”
